Part elder statesman, part spiritual seeker, Moyers has carved a unique role for himself in America’s public life. More participant than observer, he clearly allows his heart to lead him to his subjects. He is the editor and host of the television series Bill Moyers’ Journal and the driving force behind countless award-winning programs—Creativity, Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth, A World of Ideas, Beyond Hate, Families First, and Healing and the Mind—that have raised television to unprecedented heights, challenging viewers to think and learn. Since he established the independent production company Public Affairs Television in 1986, he has continued to expand the frontiers of broadcasting.
